Last week, a new light was shined upon within the videogame community, followed by many faces of bewilderment, amazement, and side-splittting laughter. Coming from African game distributor Syrian Games, the games presented had boxart that can only be described as a drug-filled surrealist trip. Heads of characters photoshopped on the bodies of other characters, overly simple title fonts, and the overabundance of greenery and rainbows for relatively dark games. I mean, I’ve seen bootleg boxart before (namely from fake Famicom games), this but this a whole ‘nother level of zany. There were over 700 games in the PS2 section, and I sifted through all of them. Yes, I’m that serious. As I clicked page after page, I thought that it’d stopped be funny eventually. But it never did, and this is just the PS2 section. Rest assured, I wanted to show many of these and was initially raring to only show 20. But screw that, we’re going for 60!
So after the break, the The Top 60 Most Wacky Bootleg Boxarts: PS2 Edition.
I’ve never been a very big fan of April Fools’ Day. Not that I hate it or anything, I just don’t love it either. However, things like this are some of the best products of the holiday. Here we have a trailer made by a talented group of people who show us what a Kinect version of Assassin’s Creed would be like.
As ridiculous as the game seems, it looks pretty damn hardcore! Maybe Ubisoft should take notes, this could be gaming gold. But in all seriousness, I’m looking forward to seeing more videos from these guys if they decide to make this a regular thing. My only fear is seeing that duel wielding little girl again, she freaked me the hell out.
